The Wolf of Wall Street
Martin Scorsese directs the story of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort. From the American dream to corporate greed, Belfort goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption in the late 80s. Excess success and affluence in his early twenties as founder of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont warranted Belfort the title "The Wolf of Wall Street." -- (C) Paramount

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"DiCaprio has hinted before that comedy might be his natural calling -- think of Catch Me If You Can -- but his energy here is not just fun, it's discovery."
‑ David Thomson, The New Republic
"The Wolf of Wall Street is a magnificent black comedy: fast, funny, and remarkably filthy."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"A forgiving nature and lots of stamina is needed for this no-holds-barred hedonistic ride into the Roman orgy-style excesses of the 1990s' financial world"
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"Terence Winter's script is a natural and well-oiled machine that produces the words of a demigod. You couldn't make these things up."
‑ Clayton Davis,
"Scorsese's hard-R portrayal of Belfort and company's insatiable appetites -- for money, for whores, for drugs, for stuff -- pierces until it numbs."
‑ Melissa Anderson, Artforum
"For three hours the movie operates at a ridiculous comedic pitch. You never forget you're at the circus. You never lose site of the lawlessness, the reckless pleasure, the sheer lunacy and lack of regulation."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"Man, does this movie have a savage bite."
‑ Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
"I genuinely fear an entire generation of young would-be financial gurus seeing this film as their Scarface, reveling in the wish-fulfillment excess while dismissing any and all social commentary or moral condemnation."
‑ Scott Mendelson, Forbes
"[An] ultimately hollow exercise in movie excess."
‑ Richard Knight, Windy City Times
"It's another variation on Scorsese's favorite kind of a story, the rise and fall. In this case, he and frequent collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio go on a full-out cinematic bender."
‑ Brad Keefe, Columbus Alive
"Scorsese unleashes a furious, yet exquisitely controlled, kinetic energy, complete with a plunging and soaring camera, mercurial and conspicuous special effects, counterfactual scenes, subjective fantasies, and swirling choreography on a grand scale."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
"I couldn't buy it, and couldn't wait for the hollow spectacle to end."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"The Wolf of Wall Street is a film that speaks to our times, and it is saying some very important things if we care to listen."
‑ Mark Hughes, Forbes
"The intensity becomes exhausting at times, but The Wolf Of Wall Street is Martin Scorsese's funniest and most purely enjoyable feature in years."
‑ Stephen Carty, Flix Capacitor
"Terence Winter's adaptation of convicted fraudster Jordan Belfort's memoir is nonstop splat-thwack-four-letter-120-miles-an-hour-f----s----f--- you. To money, to America, to women."
‑ Ray Pride, Newcity
